The next step is to install the pipes.Polypropylene tubes are recommended.Polypropylene - an inexpensive material, ideal for the bathroom.

Steel pipes - it's cheap, but they are susceptible to corrosion, so the service life of their short-lived.Getting started with running water.Standard wall or plastered or plasterboard protection.

the presence of the pipe ducts are held closely along the walls without special recesses for the pipes in the concrete, as in the photo.Pipe fixed to a wall using clips.

Conduit Pipe

In the case of plasterboard a snug fit to the walls of the pipes due to the fact that when installing plasterboard boxes reduced space bathroom, and thanks to the dense arrangement of pipes, reducing the area will be minimized.

required for sewage pipes with a diameter of 50 mm.When the device box of drywall all pipes are mounted inside, in other cases does a special recess.

Groove must be such that the pipes can be completely hidden in the wall.After this, the walls are plastered.

sewer pipe in this case must be placed on the bottom, closing the duct along the entire length.This method is recommended for bathrooms Khrushchev.

The next step is very important - wiring.Wiring in the bathroom provides good coverage, and enables the use of various household appliances.

Location outlets, lighting fixtures, switches should consider in advance.If you have a box of drywall all wiring to hide behind it.

All wires must be insulated.To this end, the wires are placed in a cable duct or an insulating sleeve.

If plasterboard box is not included in the plans, such as Khrushchev, the wiring attached to the wall and covered with plaster.

Sometimes you need to make the wiring on plastered walls, in which case you need to make a groove in which the wires are laid, then smeared plaster or alabaster.

When the room is prepared, piping and wiring ready, purchased all the materials you can start decorating.

Repair walls

Finishing work in the bathroom or start with the plastering of the walls, or with the manufacture of boxes made of plasterboard, which serve as the basis for any design ideas.

Plaster - a cheaper option of finishing in the bathroom.When plastering the wall surface is first primed.Then put up beacons, as in the photo.

Lighthouses for plaster

To this end, the surface attached vertical slats, which will flatten the surface with the use of the rules.

between slats should be such a distance that when aligned along the edges of the right to remain for up to 10 cm strips.

When beacons are ready, you can proceed to the preparation of the plaster solution.For

solution mixed cement and sand, after which the mixture is applied to the wall and leveled rule.If necessary

plaster can be applied in two layers: one layer is applied first, and after drying - second.The next day, the plaster is overwritten in order to remove the irregularities.

main objective is to create a smooth wall surfaces for further installation of the tiles.This method of decoration is presented on video.


Consider the production of a box of drywall in the frame made of metal sheets.To begin with fixing UD profile top and bottom of the walls.

further vertically to insert CD profile with a pitch of 40 cm. Along the CD profile every 50 cm fixed brackets.Profile and brackets are fixed with screws.

At this stage, between the frame and the wall must be placed insulation of mineral wool or foam, as in the photo.

Thermal insulation for gypsum board

frame partitions are performed similarly.Need for UV perimeter main profile and the inner profile as used CV.

When the frame is ready, you can proceed to the skin moisture-resistant gypsum board, which is attached to the profile with screws 25 mm in length.The joints between the sheets must be taped.

recommended to use granite, which, of course, it is not a budget for the price, but is more resistant.

begin with the calculation of the number of rows and executing the markup.Laying should start from the second row as the first row is more convenient to stack last.

Top row must be stowed only in seamless tile.

on the walls and the tile glue is applied, and the evenness of gluing necessarily checked level.On the glue can not save because the cheapest composition does not provide a proper fixation.

between the tiles need to install special crosses, which will provide the same joints.The corners of the walls on the horizontal tile should be the same width.

Clay tile is better to choose slow-drying, it will remove errors in the work, without damaging the coating.When the adhesive sets, crosses is necessary to remove and clean the entire surface.

recommended Steklomagnezitovye plate, inexpensive material - almost the price of plasterboard.These boards are stacked directly on the reinforcing mesh, and then put up beacons.

solution screed prepared as follows: cement grade not lower than M400 and sifted sand mixed in a ratio of 1: 4.

water is added in an amount equal to the amount of cement.

also need to add the PVA emulsion - 10% of the volume of water.The cement screed must be dry for 40 days.

From the floor tiles in the bathroom is better to choose the ceramic, because it does not slip when wet.Tile - this, of course, inexpensive, but also more dangerous.


tiles Masonry masonry is carried out similarly to the wall, but without seams.Each tile after installation you need to tap a rubber mallet.
